Blue Printing Your Motor
by Mick A & Tyson Jyoce
Below is the basic's to blue printing
a C or D can motor from all new parts. In this lesson we are blue printing
a Fast Ones Twister with a balanced 16d armature.
If you are interested in building
a Fast Ones Balanced 45 deg. 16d Motor below are the links to the parts!
Here are the tools you will need:
Slick-7 Motor Analizer, Slick-7 Glidex Motor Oil, JK Allen Wrench, Slick-7
Motor Alinment Tools, Magnahone Brush Radius Tool and Hood Tool.
Note: Some of the more expensive tools like the Motor Analizer and Magnahone
tools are tools you can get down the road when your racing in the Pro classes.
Now we can get started: Here one of
our top young racers, 14 y.o. Tyson Jyoce examens the motor before assembling
Tyson checks the alignment of the
Endbell. The tool (Slick-7 Brush Alignment Tool) should slide through the
brush hoods without a hang up! Make adjustments by loosening the endbell screws
and wiggling the tool as you are aligning it, then tighten down the screws.
If you still have small hang ups use
Hood Tool) which the Pros use to get that perfect alignment and also so
the motor brushes do not hang up.
Another handy tool is the (Slick-7
Bushing Alignment Tool) which you can get both the (Slick-7
Brush & Bushing Alignment Tool) in one package. The Bushing tool is used
to check the alinment of the can & endbell bushings.
Wright Way Mini Power Supply
Slick-7 Brush & Bushing Alignment
Carfully without touching the comutator
the armature is installed to check and see how many and what type of armature
spacers it will need. Also to check the alinment of the can & endbell
bushings by spining the arm.
It looks like it is going to take
.030 Arm Spacers) ,one on both sides and also two of the (Koford
.007 Arm Spacers) on the com side of the arm. Each arm spacing is different.Make
sure you do not put all the arm spacers on just one side of the arm unles
that is were you see all the gap.
Assembling it all back together to
check the spacing of the arm, it may need another one of the thin (Koford
.007 Arm Spacers). If it is to tight take one of the .007 arm spacers
out untill you feel a slight bit of play. Normally you will have a gap on
both sides of the arm shaft and installing arm spacers on both sides to take
up that gap but not to tight leaving approx. .005 play (a little less then
a .007 arm spacer)
